Information & Creative Design Specialist
Master of Architecture
Bachelor of Communication - Information Design
Josie is trained in visual communications and creative design. She received her bachelor’s degree in information design from Mount Royal University, where she designed numerous print and digital projects with a focus on rendering complex information more understandable through data visualization. Later on, Josie returned to Mount Royal to work in their Maker Studio. There, she worked on a research project where she cultivated data to assess the successes and impact of the Maker Studio on students. This focus on means of fabrication and 3D design thinking is also leading her to pursue further drafting certificates.
Josie went on to obtain a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Calgary. She developed conceptual designs meant to engage with targeted users and interact with their surrounding built environment. Her program gave her the opportunity to study abroad in Tokyo for a semester. While there, Josie engaged in the immersive studio experience, which required in-depth research and planning to propose a conceptual building design within a chosen location.
Josie's experiences have given her an interest in ethical, sustainable design. She is interested in the versatility of information storytelling through different mediums.
